Pack the House Weekend

The University of North Dakota will compete against members of the Great West Conference, as well as all Division I schools for a chance to be the 2011 NCAA Women's Basketball Pack the House Challenge Champion and win great prizes. In addition, the NCAA will make a $500 donation to a non-profit organization (of each institution's choice and subject to approval by the NCAA) on behalf of each of the 33 winners.

The goal of the challenge is to sellout and set a new attendance record for "The Betty". UND won the Great West title last year, let's see if we can do it again in 2011.

Free Foam Fists

The first 500 fans through the door to show their student ticket will receive a free foam fist so they can pump their fist at this situation.

Free Pizza

Students will not go hungry as free pizza will be provided in-between games

Kid Zone

The UND Kid Zone will be in full swing on Saturday. Kids 12 and under can enjoy:

  • The bounce house
  • Face painting
  • And many other kid-friendly activities

G.T.L. ... Get. The. Loot.

Not only will the rivalry bring excitement to "The Betty," but one lucky student will walk away with a semester of FREE tuition and that's not where the giveaways end.

The UND athletics department is playing off of the pop culture phenomenon Jersey Shore to bring Sioux fans a weekend full of fist pumping action. In-game contests will include a fist pumping competition and a G.T.L. competition, a race to see which fan can incorporate the three Jersey Shore favorites the fastest - Gym. Tan. Laundry.

In-game contest prizes

  • Sioux-Gopher hockey tickets
  • Splashers of the Sea water park passes
  • One free night stay at the Canad Inn
